My iPod touch 1st generation with iOS 3 has just spontaneously stopped responding. It's on the home screen, but won't react to touch, the home button or the power button. Holding down the power button didn't do anything either.
In case it helps: The screen goes dim after a while, and goes bright again after touching the screen, and the time and battery state change.
Is there any way of getting it to work again (apart from letting the battery drain and restarting)?
